Because for my whole life, I've been the one with more knowledge of, say, Star Trek than of general community topics.
How did you find out about our Geek community?
Clicked a link...don't remember where. Great Geek Manual?
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Writer! Almost there.
What makes you laugh?
British comedy, literary puns, geeky snark, The Doctor, silly sorts of irony, anything at all by Chris Hardwick or Billy Connolly, silly sitcoms where people talk too fast like Mindy Project and New Girl.
What is the thing in life you treasure most?
Books--writing and reading them. Followed by tea, chocolate, cats, then things like love and companionship.
What's the geekiest thing you've ever done?
I once bought--and actually paid for-- bootleg versions of the Star Wars Original Trilogy out of sheer outrage when the Special Editions came out.
What do you do to entertain yourself?
Write, watch TV, watch movies, talk about geekery, blog, wander bookstores, cruise the webs...
Oh, man. Um...Doctor Who, Firefly, Star Wars AND Star Trek because they're different and not diametrically opposed, Fringe, the lighter sort of procedurals like Castle, Primeval, Sherlock, Elementary, long involved fantasy movies, 80s fantasy movies, the whole Marvel geek-world-domination movies, high-concept scifi movies, Neil Gaiman, Robin McKinley, Jim Butcher, YA Paranormals (but not Twilight, ugh), just about any X-comic even when I should give up on them, making lists, tea, chocolate, cats, the lunacy that is Tumblr fandom, Cassandra Clare, collecting notebooks, traveling to new places, hanging out in airports, sleep, napping in sunshine, reading, writing, daydreaming, coming up with ideas, board games (especially huge collaborative ones like Arkham Horror), conventions and conferences, crochet, papercrafts, weaving, nail polish, DIY stuff, cooking, eating, trying new mixed drinks, reading blogs, talking to like-minded people, David Bowie, Rasputina, Florence + Machine, Wolfsheim, The Cure...
